Ann Demeulemeester in Book Deal With Rizzoli

The hardcover tome, written by the Belgian designer and with an introduction by musician Patti Smith, is due out in mid-October.

DEAR ANN: Ann Demeulemeester, who dispatched a hand-written letter last November to reveal her exit from fashion, is now working on a book. The hardcover Rizzoli tome, written by the Belgian designer and with an introduction by musician Patti Smith, is due out in mid-October, and billed by the publisher as “the first and highly personal perspective into the work and processes of Ann Demeulemeester, one of the most influential and inspiring fashion designers of our time.”

The $100 book is to contain more than 1,000 photographs “approximating some of the mystery and detailing associated with her brand,” according to Rizzoli.

A trio of designers — Sébastian Meunier, Mirjam van den Akker and Patrick van Ommeslaeghe — succeeded Demeulemeester at the creative helm of the Antwerp-based label that bears her name, as reported.
